Haynes, whose lacrosse player character Jackson Whittemore went from reptilian Kanima to werewolf last season, hinted at his exit on Twitter, saying: “These past few years have been the best of my life. I’m sad that this chapter has ended, but excited for a new one to begin. Thx for the love.”.

E! Online says that despite the reported change in Haynes’ status, which they say is a result of failed contract negotiations, the actor could come back to the show at some point.

Meanwhile, an MTV spokesperson issued the following statement to TVLine: “Absolutely no truth that Colton is being pushed out or that he, or any cast member, is being replaced [as reported by US Weekly]. We love Colton and look forward to his returning with the entire cast for Season 3 of Teen Wolf.”
